Marking of the IELTS Listening Test
Hope you guys are doing well, I will be taking my IELTS test in January, so I am in my preparation zone. Right now, I am concentrating in Listening and Reading sections, so I have a few questions:
1) How are IELTS Reading and Listening sections marked? By computer? I mean do all the answers need to be exact? For example, If the answer for one of the Listening question is "The textbooks", but if I wrote only "Textbooks" - is this wrong!?
2) Lastly, currently I am scoring within 29-35 in Reading, and 30-37 in Listening, with time pressured. Is this good start for practice?
